Pathway FAQs

  • If you are applying to a university within Ontario, you will apply through the Ontario University Application Centre as a 105D applicant.
  • 105D means that you are not applying directly from high school.
  • You must submit both your high school and college transcript through OUAC.
  • If you’re planning to attend university immediately following your Durham College studies, you may want to submit your transcript following first semester and then submit a final transcript after you finish your program so that you are not waiting until the end of your program to initiate the transfer process (especially if you’re transferring to an institution where the program is competitive or an agreement is not currently in place).
  • If you are applying to a college within Ontario, you will apply through
  • After you’ve been accepted, you will need to have your credit evaluated.
  • The credit evaluation process varies between institutions, but will likely include completing a transfer credit application, providing an official transcript from your previous institution, and creating a detailed outline of the courses you want to transfer. Some institutions may charge a fee for credit evaluation.
  • If you are applying to a school outside of Ontario, you should consult the institution’s website to learn about their application processes.

Consult the institution’s website to determine application deadlines. Remember to apply early and submit your transcripts so that the institution can begin to evaluate your eligibility for the program.

Admission is offered at the discretion of the institution you are transferring to. If you do not meet the minimum grade requirements, you should contact the school to determine the options that are available. In some cases, this may require upgrading your grades.

Each institution sets its own transfer policies and procedures, which includes the age of credits it will recognize for transfer. Typically, courses in areas where changes happen often will expire sooner than others (such as computer courses). Consult the institution you’re interested in attending to learn more.

You must submit both your high school and college marks when applying to university, however, most institutions will base their admission decision on your college marks. Consult with the institution you’re interested in attending if you have concerns about your high school marks factoring into your admission.

DC Students can transfer to any post-secondary institution. What will differ from one institution to the next is the amount of credit you will receive.

You may also search the Ontario Postsecondary Transfer Guide (ONTransfer) or check out the profile page for the institutions you’re interested in attending.
